mortality/aging

cardiovascular system
• discontinuance of the ascending aortic arch with the descending aorta, indicating improper pattering of the aortic arch due to a left fourth aortic arch defect
• the outflow tract does not fully septate into a pulmonary artery and aorta in some cases, resulting in the persistence of a common outflow vessel

craniofacial
• severe craniofacial defects are seen by E14.5
• although pharyngeal arches appear similar to wild-type in emergence, size and shape, expression of Dlx2 and Fgf8 are downregulated in pharyngeal arch 1
• apoptosis is increased in the first pharyngeal arch at E11.5

embryo
• although pharyngeal arches appear similar to wild-type in emergence, size and shape, expression of Dlx2 and Fgf8 are downregulated in pharyngeal arch 1
• apoptosis is increased in the first pharyngeal arch at E11.5

hematopoietic system
• thymus development is absent

immune system
• thymus development is absent

nervous system
• loss of neural crest cell derived neuronal tissue from the thoracic sympathetic ganglia
• loss of neural crest cell derived neuronal tissue from the dorsal root ganglia

skeleton
• neural crest cell derived maxillary and mandibular regions of the face and frontonasal process lack cartilaginous tissue, however mesodermally derived cartilage near the base of the skull is present

endocrine/exocrine glands
• thymus development is absent
